Bible Man Ride 2020

This time he's going further than ever before! All the way from the Wycliffe SA offices in Joburg to Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga: from our hearts to the hearts of MaPulana.

Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga is the heart of MaPulaneng, "Place of the MaPulana people." Over 3 days (1-3 Oct), the team will cycle over 430 km, moving with God's Word.

This will kick-start the Movement Campaign, running from 3rd to 17th October, giving you the chance to "Move for God's Word".

Over the past 7 years, Bible Man has cycled the 947 cycle challenge as part of the Wycliffe team, raising funds and awareness for an upcoming translation. He has covered different distances, completing the full 94.7 km last year on behalf of four Makhuwa translations in Mozambique!

This year, Bible Man rides for a South African translation: SePulana. 

* Day 1

And they're off!

The Bible Man team left Joburg this morning at 6 am, and are now well on their way to Mapulaneng.

148 km to cover today...

 

Final stop: Dullstroom

* Day 2

Image

Day 2 begins:

Another 140 km to cycle today, from Dullstroom through to Sabie. Stormy weather causing some trouble along the way...

Lots of up-hills, including a 9 km climb up Robbers Pass, but it'll be worth it. The team will be digging deep today, taking God's Word a little bit further. 

 

Final stop: Sabie

* Day 3

Image

The final stretch!

Another 140 km to cycle from Sabie through to Bushbuckridge today, where the team will be welcomed by the MaPulana community.

 

Final stop: Bushbuckridge

So many people came out to cheer on the team; including a police escort, some local cyclists and a fire engine!

There was a great celebration upon arriving, where God's Word was welcomed and embraced by the whole MaPulana community. They are very excited to have access to Scripture in SePulana, the language of their hearts, so that they can hear what God wants to say to them and understand His truth.
